Qualitative DNA PCR--HIV O?
Aug 4, 2001
Thank you for your time, Doctor. You mentioned that an HIV1 Qualitative DNA PCR will not pick up HIV2. It is true then that this test will pick up all HIV1 suptypes, including O and N?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Depends on who is doing the test, and whether it is from a kit, or a home brew designed assay.
